Sorry to hear that you were unable to acquire the drums you wanted.

Ehh....crap like this usually happens when I get close to getting something I've really wanted:  I say something to screw up the deal and lose out. 

Oh well.  There's more than one way to skin a cat, as we Southerners say. 
Bobby Hutcherson has always been one of my favorite jazz vibraphonists. His playing was a huge influence on me back in college. I still have several of his albums on vinyl.

Rest in peace, Bobby, and thank you for all of the incredible music.
We are saddened to report that legendary jazz vibraphonist, Bobby Hutcherson, passed away at his home on Monday, August 15, 2016; he was 75.

Hey, just wondering how you got on with this as I'm planning on making one for my buddy for his birthday but I'm not a drummer. So I was interested in what wood you chose in the end?

The swing solos make use of a 4-piece drumkit with cowbell, wood block and cymbals. All of these are standard instruments used in a "dance band" or big band setting, which is what the solos are written for.

Hope you enjoy working through the solos!

Thanks a lot (now the "with black drums" option I thought of seems so ridiculous).

W. Blk stands for a Wood Block.
Technique(s) / What does W.Blk stands for?

Hi, I'm reading a drum book: "Charley Wicloxon - Modern Rudimental Swing Solos",
and on page 24, the "Corn Belt Jive" solo, there is a crosshair symbol with the "W.Blk" annotation above.

I'm not a drummer, but trying to program drums on logic pro x, so my question would be:
What does W.Blk refers to?
A modern percussion instrument that is very immersive in music therapy. I recommend playing UFO drum, a steel tongue drum from Bali, Indonesia.

The first UFO drum was created in Siberia. Now we produce UFO Drums on the "Island of Gods" - Bali. Where from past people have national metal idiophone musical instrument "Gamelan". Each of UFO drum is perfectly hand-tuned by 20 years of experience master.

Our UFO Drums have moreover been used with much achievement by approved music consultants and their patients in an extensive variety of ways. You will love having the ability to add a melodic portion to your beats. An instinctual strategy to the notes makes it easy to explore new musical horizons.

The strong intelligent tones are calming and mind boggling for loosening up at whatever time. Besides, because of its insignificant design you can take it outside and welcome it in nature. Your next outside trek won't be done without UFO Drum time around the outdoors fire.

I play very calm and modern style of flamenco, mixed with elements of gypsy and celtic music.
Feedback is welcomed.
I wish you a good day and time to enjoy.
